Today has been a really busy one - this morning shopping for a friend - and then delivering the shopping, which meant a wonderful drive through Coverdale. I took my camera but never managed to stop and take a photograph - sorry.
Coverdale is a beautiful dale and it was especially beautiful this morning because the elderflowers were in bloom and lit the road side. The farmer says he can never remember the elder being so prolific with its blossom. The whole drive was sheer delight. I passed the gallops on Middleham Moor where the racehorse trainers run their horses and I was hoping for some photographs but was far too late. As the farmer pointed out, horses feel the heat too and it has been scorching hot day today.
After lunch Tess and I walked through the fields and I managed to photograph an elder bush in full bloom and a wild rose in full bloom - yes they are doing very well too this year. Then coming back through the front garden I saw that the delphiniums were coming out - what a beautiful blue they are.
The rest of the afternoon was spent with a family History expert who gave me such a lot of information on my ancestors. He has put it all into my computer and now I have to sort it out.
It seems we might have one or two new passengers on the bus next Monday - so do hope everyone is able to climb aboard.
